Friné has always had a passion for the arts and music and continues to support children and nonprofits across Los Angeles County such as local YMCAs, school arts programs, and small nonprofits to ensure adequate funding.

Frine’s commitment to community service and helping others is an important value that she learned early in life from her mother, Teresa.

Frine has the experience to get things done for Downey.

Friné hopes to become the first Latina ever elected to the Downey City Council.
